Riggins with little brother Charlie and little sister Sadie.


Sunday, March 3, 2013


Was up at 05:00AM and had coffee,Donna slept in after a night at the restaurant, Rigg’s went in and took over my side of the bed for a nap next to is Mom. Lucky for me the couch was empty.

Adam slept in too, He must have been whipped after his night out with his Dad at the Motorcross. Ever wonder how they get the astro turf up, all that dirt trucked in an shaped and made into a course, Then when it’s over it’s all removed and a football field is put back. Seems to me that would be a ton of work and money.

It was 11 degrees this morning when I let Rigg’s out for his morning break. Stayed cloudy all day and we just reached the high of 39. But it is a little windy so it seems colder than it is. Keep waiting for the days to go by and the weather to start warming up, last year by the end of March we were having some nice spring days in the high 60’s. Hope that happens this year.

Mom and Rigg’s took advantage of a nice Sunday at home with no jobs to go to and just relaxed, She is doing fine and she says she is well on the way to quitting smoking.

The Highway Dept has my mailbox back up and said they will be back to put a new concrete pad in with a dirt area for the pole instead of the post going right into concrete poured around it. Making it impossible to get the broken piece of old post out of the concrete. But mail will be delivered to the house now after a week without it.

Finally had to put diesel in the truck when I went to the store this morning, My last fuel receipt was was dated at the end of January, so we didn’t due much driving in a month. Figure each trip to and from Warrenton to get Adam puts a hundred miles on, and I go about 500 miles if I use the whole tank , but it was at a quarter left when I filled it. So it looks like most of the mileage was getting Adam last month.

Nothing much going on here in Dardenne Prairie, but this month later is when the area will wake up and tractors will be started and the planting season will begin.

Hope all is well with all our friends out there. Be safe, and have a great week. Sam & Donna…….

    1. Thanks Donna for your support....it is hard I know I've done it a dozen times. :-)
      but between that and the meds the cardiologist has given me I can actually do things and breathe w/o gasping. Going to try real hard to stick w/ it.
